US Catholic Population to Increase

The US Catholic population is going to take a significant jump by 2025, in large part due to immigrant from Latinos. It remains to be seen if immigration reform will affect this to a large degree. Similarly, these statistics do not reveal the devoutness of adherents.

"Catholic Latinos will likely increase to 40 million in 2025, more than triple the 13 million in 1990. Total growth in the U.S. Catholic population will amount to 29 million by 2025. Virtually all of the growth (26 million) will be due to the Hispanic population. Proportionally, their share of the Catholic population will double, to 48%, over the 35-year period."
